    Give me your opinions on these triggers.

    What order would you place them in from best to worst, and why?

    Jard, Timney, Rifle Basix.

    Going in a Howa action.

    Thanks!:)

    the Howa trigger can be made into a nice trigger with some elbow grease. I'd go with the factory trigger and clean it up

    In my reading, as I often do, I have heard from a lot of Rem guys say that the Rifle Basix triggers are great for the price. I have never owned one, so this is just reading, as I am sure you have.

    Timney fine works for me.

    I can't speak for the others you listed.

    I wouldn't mind trying a Jewel. They are very popular.

    I don't own a Howa. So, I can't comment on the factory trigger.

    I have a Rifle Basix in a Remington, and I like it, was curious about the Timney, and have heard of no one using the Jards....

    I was just wondering as far as quality, how would ya'll rate these , 1,2,3.

    I'm happy with the performance of the Timney's I have on a couple of Vanguards and a Howa. Given the stock triggers you'd have to be happy with anything else.

    From memory the recommended minimum pull is 1.5lb. I run mine at a crisp 2lb on my hunting rifles.

    I haven't used the others so I can't give a rating.
